FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Here you will find the most frequently asked questions and my answers. If you have any further questions, please feel free to send me an email.
I'm a beginner - are your lessons too difficult for me?
I know you’re worried, but don’t lose heart!
I met many beginners who all started from scratch and made huge progress with my method.
You have everything you need:
- My 7 rules to master German
- The English translation (for understanding)
- The audio recording (for pronunciation)
- The written words (for spelling)
- The question and answer parts for active participation (to store the information in your brain).
You don’t have to memorize words or phrases, you will learn them automatically through the repetitions. You can do it! – Believe in yourself and never give up!
How long will it take before I can speak German fluently?
It depends on many factors, such as your current level and how much time you want to invest each day.
Students who work with my lessons and stories for at least 30 minutes a day take around 6 to 8 months to speak German fluently.
Do I have to learn grammar rules to be able to speak German fluently?
Well, when you speak German you don’t have time to think about grammar rules. You have to feel what’s right and what’s wrong!
The ability to think German is key!
You have to feel the right grammar. The „Story Telling Method“ in combination with the „Question and Answer Technique“ helps you to develop this feeling.
Which files (file format) are made available?
It depends on whether you study with my free learning material or buy my learning packages. As a buyer, you can download the lessons and stories as MP3 and PDF files.
Since there are a lot of files, I had to compress them into zip files. After the download process, you can copy the MP3 and PDF files out of the zip files and use them on your computer, tablet, MP3 player or mobile phone.
The free course and sample lessons are mainly available as an online version.
Can I buy and download your learning material from anywhere in the world?
Yes, you can buy my lessons and stories from anywhere in the world.
I currently only sell digital products. After your payment you will receive an email from Elopage with an access link to your personal download page.
What payment options do you offer?
I offer these payment options:
- Credit card (Visa / MasterCard)
- Certified payment system „Sofortüberweisung“
- Bank Transfer
Tip: If you don’t find a suitable payment option, I recommend creating a PayPal account. PayPal.com is one of the largest online payment providers in the world and the service is free for customers. With a PayPal account, you can buy products online anywhere in the world.
My national currency is not EURO or US dollars - what can I do?
If your national currency is not EURO or US dollar, the payment processor (PayPal, Visa, MasterCard or your bank) will automatically change the currency.
If you’d prefer to pay in USD instead of EUR, you can switch to USD on the checkout page.
Physical version vs. digital version (MP3/PDF)
It was planned to produce physical CDs and books. However, the calculation showed that the price for all of these lessons would be five times the normal price.
I want to give everyone the opportunity to learn German, including those who don’t have that much money. That’s why I only offer the download version, but at a reasonable price that everyone can afford.
It also has the advantage that you can simply copy them to your iPod or mobile phone and listen to my lessons and stories anywhere – this saves a lot of time.
Of course you can also burn them yourself on audio CDs and listen to them this way. However, the MP3 format is much more flexible.
